Grand Theft Auto IV Hand Grenade, Nintendo Employee Paperweight and Original NWC 1990 Press Photo

Today’s post is going to be short but sweet. I simply love todays lineup. Someone just posted a GTA Hand Grenade, and this is exactly what video game collecting is all about. The seller says that these grenades were sent to specific websites back in 2008 during the launch of GTA IV.He also says that there were only 25 grenades ever handed out although I can’t confirm this. But, what I do know is that these rarely pop up on eBay so there’s some merit in what the seller says. Another cool item is the Nintendo Employee Paperweight Nameplaye.The seller says: “Vintage Nintendo employee paperweight nameplate. Appears to be from the SNES era. Has a Mario riding Yoshi logo. Brass/gold-tone metal coin shaped medallion with a Mario/Yoshi logo, a Nintendo employee’s name and Nintendo inset into a marble base.” Now it’s sort of strange to own something that was made out to someone else (which is why dedicated autographs have less value), but the fact that this came from the Nintendo head quarters which most likely looks to be in the early 90’s, that itself is priceless. So we can say this item is an exception :). Check out the video game auctions of the say below:

This promotional version is also different from the version sold in capsules weapons which are here replaced by pots of Archimedes (noodles). Once the game is finished, a completion message is also different in this version. Like all the Famicom games very hard to find , and only 4000 copies were printed (the copy number is on the cover the record).”

Good luck!
